Some people are known to fill up hard drives for people in B&Ps... I reckon there are at leasts dozens upon dozens of people who do that... I know of several for sure myself. The SBDs will never disappear, even if they pull them here. Don't believe the hype man. You might just have to adjust your listening habits.

And, changing the policy when the breadwinner dies doesn't make me too sympathetic.

Oh I understand that. I own plenty of music in part through bt and in part through the generosity of many good folks here. I don't think that's the problem. I don't think the band cares if individuals are trading shows. I also don't think you can predict how Jerry would have responded to one click downloads of shows, mp3s or people leaving notes at the itunes music store that they could go to the archive to get free copies of the Digital Download Series or at that people should go to speedingarrow to get shows.

I just find streaming shows to be a really convenient way to check out shows I haven't listened to before. However for every person that is trading hard drives, there are probably as many who only stream and would be seriously effected if this place shut down. Trust me, if they changed their policy and freed the boards here, I would download until the cows came home. Well unless they brought Dire with them....
